Konstantin Kaminsky, deputy director of the British law firm Astons, considers the idea of introducing “covid passports” dubious.
In conversation with RIA News the lawyer noted that this document is, in fact, an internationally recognized vaccination certificate. According to Kaminsky, the prospects for the introduction of such passports are extremely low, since, firstly, countries must agree on a single standard for these documents. The issue of discrimination against those who, for some reason, cannot receive the vaccine, also remains open.
In addition, the introduction of “covid passports” seems to the expert an unnecessary measure, since now many countries already require a negative test for coronavirus upon entry.
We will remind, earlier there was information that all residents of Sakhalin, vaccinated against coronavirus, will receive badges that will allow them not to wear masks in public places. Later, the head of the region, Valeriy Limarenko, said that instead, electronic certificates in the form of a QR code in the phone would be used.
In turn, the head of the Human Rights Council under the President of the Russian Federation (HRC) Valery Fadeev called the idea of introducing “covid passports” discrimination. In his opinion, such a decision would violate the rights of people who will not receive the coronavirus vaccine. “Moreover, it is very important that mostly healthy people will be affected in their rights,” Fadeev said.
